NSC Upgrading

We offer two Matric course programmes:

National Senior Certificate (NSC)

This course can be taken by learners wishing to complete their High School education by writing Matric for the first time, as well as by learners who wrote Matric between 2017 – 2019. The National Senior Certificate curriculum has a school based assessment (SBA) component that makes up part of a learner’s final Matric symbol. Unfortunately the SBA is only recognised by the Department of Education for three years.

GED® Test - Grade 12 Equivalent

The GED® Test is accepted as an equivalent to a high school diploma by approximately 98% of colleges and universities in the U.S. and 95% of employers because they recognise the GED® Test as a rigorous examination equal to or exceeding high school proficiency. The GED® Test is aligned to the career and college readiness content standards in use throughout the US, and the Test is standardised and normed using a national sample of recent high school graduates. Also, the Office of the State Superintendent of Education in Washington DC has reviewed the Test and determined that it meets their requirements to be granted a High School Equivalency Credential from Washington DC.

On successful completion of the GED® Test, you will be issued a GED® High School Equivalency Credential issued by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education for Washington DC in the US. You will receive a transcript from the GED® that will list all the subjects you have completed and the scores you have obtained in each. The status of each subject will reflect whether you have passed the subject or not. There are various performance levels indicated on the transcript, but this will be explained under another section.

The subjects include:

  • Reasoning through Language Art
  • Mathematical Reasoning
  • Social Studies
  • Science

Exams can be written at over 30 centres across South Africa.
